ICADs from June 24 to June 30

I'm happy that I've made it through an entire month making ICADs with Tammy at Daisy Yellow

Day 24
Continuing with my series on Hearts, I've sewn felt, an eye chart card, and a painted deli paper heart onto the IC.

Day 25
For this IC, I started with some crepe paper I spritzed with my handmade color mist.  To that I sewed the heart cut from scrapbook paper, then the stamped binding tape, then two birds (although not doves).

Day 26
Bits and pieces of collage fodder made up this IC.  I've found one of the variations I create on these cards is when I write the date and Bleubeard's and my names.

Day 27
More collage fodder was sewn to this IC.

Day 28
This started with a grey painted IC (did you see this on my WOYWW desk?), over which I sewed part of a map.  I then selected a butterfly from a gift from a friend, and a heart I made with scrapbook paper, over which I stamped Bleubeard's and my logos.

Day 29
Another bit of map was added to the leftovers from yesterday's heart.  I colored around the cut out portion of the heart.

Day 30
FINALLY!!  One month down, one to go.  Sewing, collage fodder, felt, and computer generated text make up this final card for June.

I've also decided to stop posting my ICADs on Sunday, so next week (or rather at the end of this week) I'll start posting on Friday, the day the links go up on Tammy at Daisy Yellow's site.  See you next month (hopefully) with more ICADs.

I'm also joining Creative Every Day (CED) later tonight.

I do love your heart series. My fave is #24 with the felt. Very heart-felt. (Sorry I couldn't resist!) But I really DO like it.

I love the mixed media! I am so new to that type of art that I'm never sure how to make it look "right", but yours are just beautiful! The map hearts are my favorite, but the first felted one speaks to me!

Wow!! I am so behind on all my blog comments from all the link ups, but wow. I am lucky I get to be so inspired right in the middle of icad. Love the stitching you do. You have a lot more control clearly over that machine than I have managed to attain. :)
